We, as human beings, were created to worship and praise our God. Music is one of those gifts God has given to us that we can give back to Him. With gratefulness and joy we lift our songs and voices to our Lord Jesus Christ. For many, music lifts their spirits and souls to express their love and commitment to serving our God and the community at large. It allows us to express our emotions whether it is jubilant rejoicing or mournful sadness. The listener and performer are drawn closer to God’s presence. To that end, the music program at Grace encourages believers to utilize their gifts in music to honor and serve the Lord.
As presenters of music, whether a choir, instrumentalist, or soloist, we are worship leaders. The music presented at Grace is God-centered, biblical, expressive of our love and need for Christ, meaningful, and delivered to the best of our ability.
At Grace, there are musical opportunities for all ages. The Chancel Choir leads in worship for the 11:00 service and presents special programs at various times of the year. The Folk Choir is an ensemble that leads in worship usually once a month during the 9:15 service and at other worship services on occasion. There are also Youth and Children’s Choirs for children from age 4 up to grade 12. The Devine Wind Ensemble leads in worship during the Christmas season and other special times. We have restarted a handbell ensemble that will hopefully share their gifts in worship monthly.
